Hattoji Furusato Village

Japan, 709-0301 Kagami, Yoshinaga-cho, Bizen City, Okayama Prefecture

As you climb up the winding slope to Mt. Hattoji, the view suddenly opens up and you are greeted by a peaceful landscape with thatched farmhouses dotting the mountaintop. ``Hatsutoji Village'' is located on a plateau at an altitude of 400 meters. Buddhism flourished in this village, rivaling that of Mt. Koya, and now there are about 13 houses, and the history can be faintly felt from the ``Kaya-roofed houses'' and temples, which are symbols of the hometown village... Such a heart-warming idyllic scenery. If you take off your watch and take a leisurely stroll inside, you'll be filled with nostalgic memories that will make you feel like you're back in the distant past. There are also facilities such as guesthouses, recreational facilities, and restaurants nearby.
